God’s Own Prohibitionist platform sayeth:

Republican platform, 2016: The progress made over the last three decades against drug abuse is eroding, whether for cultural reasons or for lack of national leadership. In many jurisdictions, marijuana is virtually legalized despite its illegality under federal law.

Three decades ago the Bush-Reagan Administration went postal with Just Say No shoot-first prohibitionism backed by misuse of tax laws and asset forfeiture looting. The Crash came in October of 1987, when every federal employee was forced to pee in a Dixie cup or be fired as agents fanned out to confiscate bank accounts, homes and vehicles.

New York repealed its state prohibition law in 1923, right after the economic depression that accompanied the onset of prohibition enforcement. Other states followed, alarming the Republican party, now heavily infiltrated by Prohibition Party regulars.

Republican platform, 1928: PROHIBITION: We reaffirm the American Constitutional Doctrine as announced by George Washington in his “Farewell Address,” to-wit: The Constitution which at any time exists until changed by the explicit and authentic act by the whole people is sacredly obligatory upon all. (…) The people through the method provided by the Constitution have written the Eighteenth Amendment into the Constitution. The Republican Party pledges itself and its nominees to the observance and vigorous enforcement of this provision of the Constitution. (NY World Almanac 1929 848) (Johnson and Porter 1975 288) [Nicholas Murray Butler offers repeal plank, hooted down]

Democratic platform, 1928: Law Enforcement: The Republican party, for eight years in complete control of the government at Washington, presents the remarkable spectacle of feeling compelled in its national platform to promise obedience to a provision of the federal Constitution which it has flagrantly disregarded and to apologize to the country for its failure to enforce laws enacted by the Congress of the United States. Speaking for the national Democracy, this convention pledges the party and its nominees to an honest effort to enforce the eighteenth amendment and all other provisions of the federal Constitution and all laws enacted pursuant thereto. (…) (Johnson and Porter 1975 273)

Then came ANOTHER stock market crash when Dry Hope Herbert Hoover in 1929 got rid of “dog-eat-dog” freedom and imposed “his brother’s keepers” shoot-first prohibition enforcement using tax laws and asset forfeiture looting. The banking system quickly collapsed, unemployment was everywhere, and federal agents and police murdering people were in every newspaper every day.

Prohibition party platform, 1932: We unequivocally oppose the repeal or weakening of the Eighteenth Amendment or of the laws enacted thereunder, and insist upon the strengthening of those laws. …can and will coordinate all the powers of government, Federal, State and local, strictly to enforce, by adequate and unescapable punishment of all violators, this wise and beneficent law.

Liberal party platform, 1931: PROHIBITION: We demand the immediate repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment.

Democratic platform 1932: We advocate the repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment, …

GOP platform, 1932: PROHIBITION… The Republican Party pledges itself and its nominees to the observance and vigorous enforcement of this provision of the Constitution. … We do not favor a submission limited to the issue of retention or repeal, for the American nation never in its history has gone backward, and in this case the progress which has been thus far made must be preserved, while the evils must be eliminated.

American voters won back their right to partial self-ownership by eliminating the Republican candidates. Democratic party politicians got government paychecks, bribe money and jobs for their buddies. Republican politicians were avoided for 25 years and the Prohibition party slowly withered on the vine. That is the power of noncommunist Liberal or Libertarian spoiler votes!

Integrity is their Enemy… 2

Part 2 of the 2016 LP Battleground state spoiler vote lever analysis

Spoiler vote levers: our 2016 vote % times that State’s electoral votes–a measure of clout

The Libertarian Party formed as Richard Milhous Nixon–a Quaker zealot like Herbert Clark Hoover–sought to strengthen the Comstock Law, all other prohibition laws, and use military conscripts to bring nationalsocialist eugenics to bear upon non-christian non-whites in the former French opium regie of Vietnam. These policies drove the dollar off the gold standard and prompted David Nolan to enunciate principles consonant with objective values, and with individual rights as the moral claims to freedom of action:

  • the right to life—accordingly we support the prohibition of the initiation of physical force against others;
  • the right to liberty of speech and action—accordingly we oppose all attempts by government to abridge the freedom of speech and press, as well as government censorship in any form; and
  • the right to property—accordingly we oppose all government interference with private property, such as confiscation, nationalization, and eminent domain, and support the prohibition of robbery, trespass, fraud, and misrepresentation.

The only answers to that are more deception, fraud and force by the entrenched Kleptocracy. Nixon’s cohort, within 24 hours of the Libertarian Party’s formation, made the Anti-libertarian law. This forcibly added government loot to the “contributions” of predatory corporations to bend “major parties” to legislate their will.  Communist and socialist parties were demoralized and strove all the harder to infiltrate the Democratic party. Faith-addled Comstock-law prohibitionists, nos disguising deadly coercion behind a “pro-life” mask, sought more control over the Republican party.  Both parties now invest stolen treasure and effort toward the perversion of voters’ principles. These labors generate fallacious slogans:

  • Perfection is the enemy of _______ (deception and treachery)
  • A vote for _______ (LP candidate) is a vote for _______ (other entrenched party candidate)
  • But Libertarians are in favor of _______ (something awful NOT in the libertarian platform)
  • The Libertarian candidate cannot possibly “win” (Win=be hired by government to help us betray and plunder voters).
  • Winning is getting our tool onto the government payroll to leech off of you. (Real winning is reducing the number of such leeches picking our pockets at gunpoint–this is what LP spoiler votes accomplish)
The Emperor is not a politician!

Scott Adams on non-politicians

But the practical and mathematical effect is that voters may now unequivocally identify freedom from coercion as the value they seek, and politicians cannot ignore that signal. Libertarian spoiler votes carry information content similar to that transmitted by prices. They take votes from both entrenched looter parties in proportion to the naked coercion those parties advocate, no matter how confusingly they confound the issues. This is easy to check using free spreadsheets.

The Libertarian party’s 4 million votes broke down into more votes than the difference between the hired and fired looter party in 13 states casting 127 electoral votes. For context, the anti-energy Dems lost the 2016 election by 74 electoral votes. Seven of those Libertarian battleground states were won by Republicans (for 13% of disputed electoral votes) and six by Democrats (with 11% of those electoral votes). Overall the Democrats, seeking coercion to make electricity and firearms more expensive lost on balance 2%, or eleven more electoral votes to LP candidates than did the GOP, which seeks to crowd prisons and make birth control, bail bonds, First Responders™ and drugs more expensive and dangerous.

Thirteen states are are now benefiting as Libertarian Battleground States for which both kleptocracy parties will pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any abettor, and oppose any competitor to assure the survival and the success of their half of the looter kleptocracy, its remoras and hangers-on. The reader no doubt recalls that These States started out as thirteen colonies abused by a smugly coercive mercantilist Metropolis. Please bear that in mind–and listen to what both entrenched party candidates say about each other–as you decide what (not who) to vote for next election.

Pre-Libertarian Cycles

Cycle theories proliferate in Europe, where Liberal means laissez-faire to the educated. This particular one looks at oscillations in a system made unstable by altruism. The English it is written in is a second language (a concept that is hard to explain to Americans outside of Puerto Rico).

Still, the thoughts aren’t broken at all and the text is proof that political economy is alive and well in parts of Europe once enslaved by soviet socialist liberation. At a glance the graph shows “market share” of two broadly-described, evolving ideologies, the better of which is on the upswing at this Libertarian Moment, according to the author.

A Fisher-Pry graph would be useful

Simple linear trendline for libertarian vote percentages

This whole concept of market penetration and replacement of things like techie gimrackery (cellphones v. landlines, for instance) has been a subject of applied mathematics since the 1970s.  Today we have a definition of government perfected in 1908, and a proper purpose of government spelt out with the Non-Aggression Principle since 1947. Furthermore, the tacit assumption that there is something “good” about altruism has crumbled to powder at the feather-touch of a single question: Why?

Until that question was asked, force-initiating altruism waxed until the infected area became a totalitarian Altruria which promptly collapsed. The ruins were then gradually replaced by voluntarist individualism (however imperfect) in the cycle depicted. For the first time in history a non-aggressive party built on a consistent foundation may keep the blue line at its maximum value and the red line at its minimum henceforth. The Libertarian Party can accomplish this through the pressure of spoiler votes–the mechanism that spread totalitarianism before ethicists seriously analyzed the normative worth of 19th-Century assumptions. It’s certainly worth a try.

The Religious Conservative Dilemma

On January 27, 2017, one week after his inauguration, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Order entitled “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States.” Exec. Order 13,769, 82 Fed. Reg. 8977 (Jan. 27, 2017) (“EO-1”). EO-1’s stated purpose was to “protect the American people from terrorist attacks by foreign nationals admitted to the United States.”

Many people disagree with the wisdom of this EO. Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty of Pennsylvania and Everitt Aaron Jameson of San Francisco, for instance, thought the Executive Order a bad idea. After all, Donald Trump sewed up the Republican nomination by telling Reason TV personnel: “Libertarianism? I like it!” That alone was enough to draw the boiling wrath of communists, socialists, fascists, prohibitionists, amok berserkers, suicide-vest designers, iSlam, iS, all looter intelligentzia and cognoscenti, greens and democrats. But Republicans who recalled losing to Clinton–after Ross Perot spoiled their party–quickly perceived the benefits of setting aside prejudice and nominating someone who wasn’t even a despised politician.

Is there an objective basis, evidence, to show that excluding entry of Saracen berserkers and communist nationals was a bad idea? We’ve seen how satellite photos of Puerto Rico and Texas prove that uranium reactors survive undamaged, while solar panels and windmills produce only blackouts when hit by a hurricane. So how have These States fared when compared to the sensitive, concerned and aware People’s States of Ecological National Socialist Europe? Europeans have done a lot of bragging about how loftily they’ve been importing intolerant, faith-based, self-sacrificing mystical fanatics. The comparison is easy to make. Here is a picture showing terrorist attacks in These States and environs (not counting the ones currently making headlines).

Here is a picture from the same map showing how well European appeasement is working.

So where’s the dilemma? The dilemma is that American religious fanatics attack some trade and production, whereas their ideological bretheren in the People’s States also attack some trade and production at America’s urging, and leave the killing and maiming of innocent bystanders in the hands of cheap immigrant labor.  The Republican party used to do basically the same thing.  On January 29, 2001, George Bush Jr. issued Executive Order 13199—Establishment of White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. The idea was:

“…charitable community groups, including religious ones, should have the fullest opportunity permitted by law to compete on a level playing field, so long as they achieve valid public purposes, such as curbing crime, conquering addiction, strengthening families and neighborhoods, and overcoming poverty. This delivery of social services must be results oriented and should value the bedrock principles of pluralism, nondiscrimination, evenhandedness, and neutrality.

The result was a sharp increase in infiltration by officious activists and confidential informants eagerly telling federal, state and local enforcement personnel where they might raid the Hemp from Hell and round up the Servants of Satan while confiscating their property, homes, savings, automobiles, businesses and bank accounts.

Instead of easily-understood pictures of smoking ruins and mangled children, the Bush application of Divine Revelation through Comstock-Law asset forfeiture produced capital flight, a liquidity crisis, a long and miserable economic depression and the quickening of socialist and nationalsocialist infiltration into the US government. By adding more intervention in Ottoman territory, the GOP managed to spark retaliation resulting in the World Trade Crater in New York City.

By copying the Libertarian energy and gun planks, God’s Own Prohibitionists have held on to some pelf, boodle, government paychecks and graft. But their tragic addiction to coercive bigotry instituted by Anthony Comstock and the Prohibition Party shows the Urinalysis Party still has a lot to learn if it hopes to earn the votes of honest, rational, independent citizens.

Looter Media Attacks

Intellectuals of the looter persuasion are quoting Eric Trump as if their cynicism could modify his observation:

“That’s been the playbook in our government for so long: distract, disrupt, hurt, bash, defame, do whatever you can for your own political gain. It’s sad that we don’t have more morals or character or whatever it is.” —Eric Trump

The rough-and-tumble at issue became serious because just as the Libertarian Party was forming, Nixon’s National Socialist Congress passed the Anti-Libertarian Campaign Bribery law of 1971.  Two decades later,  a non-Kleptocracy candidate had this to say about the way the Altruist Broadcasting Corporation, Nationalsocialist Broadcasting Corporation and Communist Broadcasting Service (the dirty tricks guys) were attacking him in October of 1992:

Yes Ross Perot helped the entrenched looter kleptocracy divert voters away from the Libertarian Party. He was repaid in government cash subsidies taken out of the pockets of many honest working people who would rather not coerce anyone.  Perot reinforced the superstitious ignorance that caused These States to export brutal prohibitionism to South America, confident that would destroy the economies of Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Bolivia while setting up a fascist dictatorship in Peru. It is true that Reagan Administration manipulation of prohibition and tax laws did wreck a prohibition-created source of cash then fueling communist expansion. But the process corrupted the entire Mexican government into a huge 1930s Chicago.

Spoiler votes cast for Ross Perot unfrocked the more fanatical zealots the way The Liberal Party platform had in 1932. Perot’s spoiler votes reversed deficit spending and led to a surplus just as George Wallace spoiler votes turned Republicans into ku-klux Dixiecrats before the election subsidies law. The Clinton years were prosperous thanks mostly to the policy changes caused by Ross Perot spoiler votes. The looter press, naturally, thanked The Kleptocracy.

So yes, Eric Trump, you observe correctly, and you can do something to improve the situation. Vote Libertarian in the mid-term elections. Tell fake media that the Nixon Media Subsidies to favor the entrenched parties have polluted democracy. Come clean, follow Dad’s good example and say: “Libertarianism? I like it!” The LP platform, the one that got your Dad the nomination, takes less than half an hour to read. Borrowing our energy and Second Amendment planks landed you in the White House. I’m hoping I can count on your vote NOT as a token of appreciation. We both want back the cleaner elections we had before Richard Nixon altered the tax code to subsidize the initiation of force and undermine American morality.

“I like it. A lot of good points…” Those words guaranteed that the desperate, destitute and dishonest Gee Oh Pee urinalysis party would nominate Donald ten months later. That got Republicans government jobs, paychecks–and opportunities to have younger men violently put to death on both sides of the planet.  Three will get you five that that looter cartoonist will not quote your mention of the LP on his mudline fed by subsidized media pets.

Trump’s Libertarian Party Card

On September 9, 2015, Donald Trump gave Reason TV his opinion of libertarianism:

Donald Trump: “I like it. A lot of good things. I don’t want to talk to you now, but a lot of good things, a lot of good points.”

On July 19, 2016, Donald Trump won an entrenched party nomination as its candidate for president. Time elapsed: 10 months and ten days after he said nice things about the LP.org.

On November 8, 2016 Donald Trump was elected President.
Time elapsed after Trump’s original pro-libertarian comment: 14 months.

George Waffen Bush’s first Executive Order establishing a faith-based Fifth Column within the federal government led to a predictable asset-forfeiture Crash and Great Depression. Folks recalled the time when the Great Depression was brought on by Herbert Hoover’s prohibition enforcement policies, and the Republican Party had a problem.  Running an overdone faith-based invader of the opium regie in Vietnam failed miserably in the 2008 economic collapse. Nobody mistook McCain’s anti-choice running mate for Tonie Nathan. Nominating the leader of a prohibitionist, anti-choice mystical cult in the 2012 Great Depression also failed.

At a time when voters correctly surmised that government action by entrenched politicians had again wrecked the economy, Trump sewed up the Gee Oh Pee nomination ten months ahead of time with those 8 words: “I like it. A lot of good things.” The Libertarian Card was Trump’s implicit threat of running for office on the Libertarian Party ticket. When Trump spoke those words, God’s Own Prohibitionists suddenly remembered how Ross Perot’s spoiler votes had cost their party boodle, pelf, handouts, grants, paychecks, subsidies and jobs in the middle of a prohibitionist asset-forfeiture depression. Trump had foreshadowed the strategy WAY in advance… 16 years before closing in for the kill.

The same thing happened to President Taft, when Teddy Roosevelt swung the election to Woodrow Wilson. Nixon won in 1968 despite George Wallace taking the ku-klux vote. But Nixon’s Moral Majority Republicans adopted Dixiecrat bigotry so fast you’d think George Wallace had won every electoral vote and become Grand Goblin himself. Nixon also got the tax code changed to inject subsidies into entrenched looter party campaigns–this within 24 hours of the Libertarian Party forming.

FDR’s victory came entirely thanks to the Liberal Party of America. In a Gentlemen’s Agreement, that party faded into the background once the Democratic platform followed their example by adopting a prohibition repeal plank. Herbert Hoover’s tax-law prohibitionism had so thoroughly wrecked the economy that voters stayed away from Republican prohibitionists for five consecutive elections.

The Libertarian Party’s four million spoiler votes cast a long shadow over the three million or so popular votes that Hillary wishes had made her the “real” winner. The Democratic party wishes it had copied the Libertarian planks on relegalization and energy instead of listening to econazis and pushing for National Socialist gun laws. Threatening to make electricity illegal and pass socialist gun laws was the height of disqualifying stupidity.

Altruism and the Panic of 1893

protective tariff gouging

Read the original… next column over

In the election of 1892 neither the Democrat or Republican party carried an income tax plank in its platform. That had appeared in the German-Language Communist Manifesto of 1848, translated 2 yrs later into English.

Small, pathetic groups formed short-lived parties to push the government back into the sort of robbery at gunpoint legislated during the War Between The States–the stuff Lysander Spooner opposed so vehemently. Suddenly the People’s Party–financed by mining interests that profited enormously from the free coinage of their silver into legal tender dollars–out of nowhere got 9% of the popular vote and over TWENTY electoral votes…

This came in the wake of the piously officious Republican Administration of Benjamin Harrison–a grasping protective tariff advocate running a War on Smuggling. Here is how Howells  (a prohibitionist Christian Socialist) interpreted the looter populism of 1892-1896 America in Letters from an Altrurian Traveler:

It is chiefly they [bourgeois merchants], therefore, who are anxious to Altrurianize America, as the sole means of escape from their encompassing dangers. Their activity is very great and it is incessant; and they were able to shape and characterize the formless desires of a popular movement in the West, so that at the last presidential election twenty-two electoral votes were cast in favor of the Altrurian principles which formed the vital element of the uprising. …

The friends of Altrurianization will not fail to bring before the American people some question of the very nature of money, and of the essential evil of it, as they understand money. They will try to show that accumulated money, as a means of providing against want, is always more or less a failure in private hands; that it does not do its office; that it evades the hardest clutch when its need is greatest. They will teach every man, from his own experience and conscience, that it is necessarily corrupting ; that it is the source of most vices, and the incentive, direct or indirect, of almost every crime. (…)

Realizing the alternative to money is the initiation of force, Ayn Rand countered with The Money Speech in Atlas Shrugged. Go ahead, make the comparison…
